Remove crops that are touching the bleed area

I'd imagine with enough time & patience (I have neither at the moment) I could modify the Remove Printer Marks script, but has anybody already done that for asshole clients that make crop PDFs with the marks touching the image area??  :banghead:

Have you tried Pitstop Global change clean up trim area?
I use that to delete marks and then I use the design layout panel to add crops, altho you can add marks there too.
I have the one that Curry created (design layout) I think I modified
It works with the trim box, so the trim box has to be right first.

Usually you can triple click one mark and it will then select all fo them. Then delete. You will need to do this twice. Once for the black crop and once for the white crop.

So, 4 marks x 2 sides x 12 files...  :shoots_self:

Here is the design layout action to add crops 1/8 away from bleed box

Where do I import that? Pitstop doesn't recognize it.  :-\

oops, found it! New stuff to learn - yay!!  :banana:

Well the 4 marks would all get selected by the triple click so it would be two triple clicks for each page.

It's the Design Layout Panel
Works like a champ
You want to remove your marks with the global change cleanup trim
you can add the marks there too, I can't remember why I don't add my marks there anymore.
I don't add marks back in with cleanup trim area global because it puts the marks 1/16 away from trim box.
yeah, I'm that tedious  :laugh:

I use a droplet for Adobe Acrobat to remove all printer marks. I have attached my droplet to this post if anyone wants it.

 It's so frustrating that people put crop marks in the bleed area. Why...why...why...  :git off mah lawn:

I didn't know about that triple click Joe! Thanks!

The triple click scares me as it looks like it's grabbing more than just the crops. I fully expected it to delete another element like something in the background that I'd miss and get blamed for later.

It's more like grip, grip, grip, noise, then spin and 2 feet in and feel shame.

I use it quite a bit. I like living on the edge. :evil:

...and if you don't have PitStop, you can fix it with a pre-flight fixup in Acrobat DC
